Friday Round-Up - #27

Yippee! The December issue of Christian Fiction Online Magazine is a goldmine. Several people have done posts on book trailers, which seem to be all the rage. Ginger Garrett shares her experiences and gives helpful tips on producing a great trailer. Kelly Mortimer,of Mortimer Literary Agency, gives insight into what makes a book marketable. Enjoy these articles and many others, and you can't beat the price - Free!

The Seekers have a fabulous post on writing a query letter, include samples, and links. This is a two-parter, so be sure to catch both of them.

I found one observation particularly interesting. People are learning how to produce a dynamite query letter, but not paying as much attention to their novels. Hmm - a bit of cart before the horse here?

Dee Stewart, at The Master's Artist, gives 10 ways to promote your writing through the holidays. Check it out. Have a great weekend!

I haven't really read a whole lot of CFOM so I'll have to check it out.
Thanks for the usual helpful round-up!

Hi Jessica -

There's a lot of excellent content on CFOM. I read it in bits and pieces because of time constraints.

You're welcome. I try to find articles on a variety of subjects.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Susan,
I hope your migraine goes away. :-(
Used to get headaches all the time, so I really feel for you and will pray you get better quickly. Also, I saw your post on RG's blog. If there's anything someone can do to help, I'd be happy to. Plus, prayer is good. :-)
Sleep tight!

Hi Jessica -

Thanks for your prayers. I'm feeling like a human being again. Migraines are not fun.

Blessings,
Susan :)
